Table 4. Levels of consumption of groups of psychotropic substances in defined daily doses for statistical purposes (S-DDD) per thousand inhabitants per day

The Convention on Psychotropic Substances of 1971 does not foresee the reporting of consumption of psychotropic substances to the Board. Levels of consumption of groups of psychotropic substances in defined daily doses for statistical purposes (S-DDD) per thousand inhabitants per day have therefore been calculated on the basis of statistics on manufacture and trade provided by Governments. To exclude the impact of yearly fluctuations on the calculated annual consumption, the average for the three-year period 2012-2014 was calculated. In countries that do not manufacture and export psychotropic substances, quantities declared as imported are considered to be destined for consumption. For countries with manufacture and exports of psychotropic substances, the average annual manufacture is added to the average annual import; the average annual export and amounts of psychotropic substances used for conversion into other psychotropic or non-psychotropic substances are deducted. Countries and territories are presented in order of descending levels of consumption expressed in numbers of defined daily doses consumed on average per day and per thousand inhabitants. The names of territories appear in italics.
